New Delhi: A lawyer, who had approached a
Delhi court seeking direction to CBI to make Reliance ADAG
chairman Anil Ambani, Tata group chief Ratan Tata, corporate
lobbyist Niira Radia and DMK chief M Karunanidhi`s wife Dayalu
Ammal as accused in the 2G scam, on Monday withdrew his petition.
Advocate R Krishnamurthy sought to withdraw his
application seeking a direction for making the four as accused
in the high-profile case after special CBI judge OP Saini
took a strict position and asked him some tough questions.
"Kindly show me the law under which I can pass the
direction to the CBI?," Saini asked the advocate, who failed
to answer his question.
Realising that the court was not happy with his
petition, the lawyer sought permission to withdraw the same
which was allowed.
"The application is dismissed as withdrawn," the court
During the brief hearing, Krishnamurthy produced his
letter dated February 26, addressed to the CBI Director,
before the court.
He said that CBI had not responded to the letter.
The lawyer had filed application on May 20 saying, "as
far as 2G scam is concerned, the key role is played by Niira
Radia, Ratan Tata, Anil Ambani and Dayalu Ammal (wife of DMK
chief M Karunanidhi). The truth will come out only by
impleading them in the charge sheet."
The court had earlier slapped a fine of Rs 10,000 on a
journalist for seeking a direction for CBI to make some
telecom companies like Videocon-owned Datacom, S-tel, Aircel
and Maxis as accused in the 2G case.
